Techniques are described herein for a network manager driven approach to identify and predict link level issues using Digital Optical Monitoring (DOM), Digital Diagnostic Monitoring (DDM), and/or fiber cable data available on a per port basis. Techniques described herein include a mechanism that can identify small form-factor pluggable (SFP), enhanced SFP (SFP+), quad SFP (QSFP), etc. issues in advance and take proactive appropriate actions to fix and/or mitigate link level issues; thereby resulting in improved transceiver (xcvr) assurance.
